Outstanding Crazy Fingers and early Touch of Grey! This is a great sounding show but I agree with a previous reviewer, it's played back a bit faster than it should be. I've noticed this in other 80's SBD shows. It makes them sound cool though, as if they played really fast, but it would sound just as good at the correct speed and more natural.

This is an essential show. Very underrated considering the playing quality and song rotation switch around.
This show has the best post-revival Crazy Fingers... period. How could you disagree? Over 1 1/2 minute introduction. Brent playing actual piano? Yes yes yes. so good! The playin' before it is also pretty damn great. and Bobby says "playin' in the band" all quick and cheezy before going into the big jam. What a cheeseball! Anyways, this show is incredible, especially b/c of its oddball but fun first set. The Dead always gave extra effort when playing in NYC, let alone the Garden.

First Throwing Stones>NFA
LOL, an auspicious occasion for sure. Great show though, from a tour well worth collecting.

I grew up on this tape
Just another great show from the great year of 82. This year is fast becoming my favorite.

3 things I remember about about this show... the M80 that went off during He's Gone (which scared the crap out of us)... a cop lighting a joint for a deadhead... and the bus ride back to Hartford after the show; the driver said, "one smell of pot and the bus stops"; to which one of my buddies replied, "and then what are you gonna do". Although the smaller theaters were the best places to see the Dead, the garden was (and I suppose still is) a great place to see a show; always an electric atmosphere to be sure. This show featured a cool PITB to start the show; 3 fairly new '82 tunes. Speed is a hair fast and if you use NT pitch adjust to about -1.5%. Compared to other '82 boards, this one is better than most for that flatly recorded year; it's too bad, because there were some good shows in '82. Overall a 4 for the recording and 4.5 for the show.

One Sweet Show
Great 82 show. I was there and this is just an extra bonus to get to listen to it again after 20 some years.
Audio Quality was excellent and the performance was solid from all players. MSG seems to bring out the best in players. I love it. It is destined to be one of my core road CD's.
See you at the next show!

If you like 82 sbds, you'll probably like this one. Sometimes the mix is a little more ragged than usual for the era, but it's still pretty nice.
BTW--If you're a winamp user, there's a free plug in (NT Pitch) that you can use to pitch correct tunes. Of course, if you're burning these to CDRs, you'll probably be able to easily pitch correct the corresponding wav files.

Beware this source...
... it plays back too fast. Tried to play along with my guitar and this music was almost a half-step higher! Then I noticed Jerry's voice sounds like he's on helium. Wether this show is that great or not I can't say because it plays so fast it's really distracting.

get the aud
the show is great, but JG is a little too low in the mix for me. I d/l'd the aud which was much better.

Crystal clear sound- worth the download for the amazing sound quality alone... but then... Explosive, accurate performances...Why say more? Trust me- this one is worth it.

Great 1st Set
The first 4 songs make a great show-opening sequence, Crazy Fingers is perfect, and the rest of the show is more than solid. Excellent show. Certainly one of the year's best. Great representation of the straight-up rockin' of GD '82. Check it out.
